Here in Australia, summer has just ended which means it’s the beginning of Autumn/Fall. I’ve decided to list 10 reasons why I love winter because in three short months it’s going to be my favourite season and I can’t wait.
Honestly, cuddles are the best thing about winter. There is just something so appealing about sitting inside snuggled up on the couch with my boyfriend and a blanket. Like seriously, why would anyone want anything else?
2. Winter clothes
Woollen Jerseys, Jackets, Jeans, Trackpants, Boots, Scarves, Hats, Hoodies… Need I say more?
3. Hot Chocolate
Movie night + hot chocolate = Best night ever!
There’s just something that makes reading books in winter so much more attractive. I don’t know if it’s the cold outside or just the fact that you can sit there with a blanket and a hot chocolate and just escape from reality.
5. Winter Colours
Dark purples, deep reds and browns, blues, I can’t wait for the opportunity where it’s okay to wear heavy makeup. I can’t wait to experiment with so many different lip and eye colours. I’ll keep you all updated of course.
6. Not Having To Shave
I’m pretty sure most girls can relate to this. Shaving just takes so much time and effort so any excuse not to do it is great!
7. No Mosquitoes
Seriously, I can’t count how many times I’ve been bitten this summer, and coming from New Zealand where we don’t get bitten as often, it’s been pretty much death so naturally, I’m looking forward to the colder months where they don’t come and eat you alive.
8. Netflix Marathon
In winter it is socially acceptable to stay at home in bed watching Netflix all day. Like can you think of anything better?
It’s impossible to get hot and sweaty. Warm cosy blankets are life and there’s nothing better than it being acceptable to sleep for more than 10 hours every night.
I love love love the rain. Sure it rains in summer but there’s just something about the rain in winter. The way it gets all dark outside or it gives me an excuse to not have to out.
Thanks for reading. I hope this post encourages you to give winter a chance because it honestly is the most beautiful season. Especially for those of you in America and Europe, I mean snow is incredible.
